EDIT: I have just realized the same problem occurs when I update my CPU driver... So it's not directly a graphics card problem

A month ago I tried updating my graphic drivers for my Quadro 3800 Fx. I am running Windows 7 64-bit without service Pack 1. It was a complete disaster as during the installation my theme switched over to basic and I was unable to activate the transparent theme. Not only this but the desktop icons were misaligned and the mouse disappeared when putting it to the far left of the screen. I was even able to drag windows out of view all the way to the left of the screen. A system restore corrected my issue.

I tried installing Quadro/Tesla Driver Release 275 version 276.28 WHQL today and the same thing happened. I then attempted to do a clean install of the graphics driver which is available in the custom options. Doing this however produced are even worse result as it simply uninstalled my current driver which made my screen go black and then my computer reboot. Once my computer rebooted I saw the Windows 7 boot screen and heard the Windows 7 login screen sound however I continue to see the Windows 7 boot screen.

This made my computer completely unusable as I was unable to see what I was doing. I finally managed to fix my computer by pressing the start button on my keyboard and typed in system restore and pressing enter a few times. My computer finally booted from the previous restore point and I was able to see everything again.

I have also tried updating to a older driver yet the same problem occurs!!!

How am I supposed update my graphics driver when it stuffs up every time?

Preferably, there is no force updates needed for users specially on any video drivers. So the driver that worked properly for you is the way to go. There are updates/fix/patch that correct certain previous versions on certain application, games, softwares and on system but does not address a need for updates. Means if I am not directly affected by that update to improve my system and sometimes cause trouble on certain occassion, I would pass. Updates usually have details.

Have you walk directly to their support forums or guides to install any missing patch for that particular game?

There are no newer patches... The game upon boot says I have v190 and wants the graphics driver v275.
